Grand Marais

We read history with a deepening sensitivity to who was reporting what - and why. And we have a starkly different perspective than did the people who wrote some of that history one or two hundred years before.

Historian and author Timothy Cochrane admits there were "some pretty offensive things said," but he pieces together a nonetheless fascinating, first-person account of the earliest days of European settlement near Grand Marais, and the Anishinaabeg trading partners skillfully playing the American Fur Company and the Hudson Bay Company against one another.
